After receiving this recipe for cookie dough cupcakes in my email inbox, I knew I had to make them! I used my favorite recipes for the chocolate cupcakes and for the cookie dough.
I decided to make these mini cupcakes instead of the standard size. After scooping in a small amount of cake batter into the mini muffin tin, I added a small scoop of cookie dough, then I covered the dough with more cake batter. On a separate baking pan, I dropped small spoonfuls of the cookie dough and baked little cookies.
I baked these cupcakes and cookies for 10 minutes and allowed them to cool. While they were cooling, I prepared the frosting using the recipe from the original email that I received. After the cupcakes cooled, I piped on the frosting using a 1M swirl tip.
I added mini chocolate chips to the top of the cupcakes and then stuck the mini chocolate chip cookies on top. These cupcakes were complete!
